Trip can you answer this? From my local board...

Quote:
Have you ever seen one up close and personal? I'd want to lay hands on it first. I wonder if you could remove the crappy backrest and just snug it up to the sissy bar? I can guaranteee my wife won't give up her office chair backrest for the one on the trunk.

Also wonder how much it weighs? They don't say. Most luggage racks I've seen have a limit around 10-12lbs, so if the unit weighs 5lbs. you're really cutting down on capacity.

once I see how ontwo (or was it pdog?) makes out I'll see about orderin' one.

I may find an extra passenger seat and rig something up to bolt to the bottom of the case rather than put it on a luggage rack though.

Wasn't me. I want to Nelson Rigg saddlebags to complete my set.

However, if I was going to add one, I would fab a bracket that would bolt right into where the grab bar sits. Then extend it backward. That way 1. I could use it with the wifey on back and 2. I could use it with the tail bag and saddlebags on

I might get one and bolt it to a spare seat. If it can hold a 150 girl, it can hold this thing.
